romney as a plutocrat, someone out of touch with the main stream and romney doubles down on obama's strategy with this video that came out. so they're in a real situation here and they've got a short time to right it. >> it's offensive if you unpack and think about it. what he's saying is we're all stupid. we don't remember that the polls have shown republicans up a lot. and secondly this idea that people in the media, if their personal views go one way, the product of the reporting goes another way. i don't think there's resonating with the public at all. if you go back to important media failures like the iraq war or the financial crisis, on iraq there may have been a lot of reporters who were personally skeptical but there was a collective media failure in the way they covered it. so the idea that someone's personal views are always going to represent them in what they write or how they report, i don't think that computes, i think you would have to be dumb or tuned out to buy the crap that paul ryan is peddling there. >> and then there's the question of who is the real arnold s

heard mitt romney the last hour just say that the reason unemployment is down because there are so many people that stopped looking for work and what he says is that if you take a look at the number of people who were all seeking jobs, if they were actually included in that number, the real unemployment rate would be 11% because it would include all those folks that are certaining for work, instead of dropping out. does that look accurate? >> yes. here's why. if you look at something called the labor force participation rate, meaning the share of adult workers who are either in the labor market or looking for work, that has gotten smaller and smaller. it's the smallest since 1981 right now. that meensz people have left the labor market, so if you were -- and a lot of economist read these numbers -- if you were to looking look at the labor force participation rate from the day president obama took office and use that same size of the labor force today, you would have an unemployment rate more like 11%, not 7.8%. so on the very basis of that statistic, he is correct, but many economists w
